The 10-year-old has been cast in ‘Battling Boy’ by his dad Brad Pitt’s own production company!

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s oldest child Maddox will fight monsters in the movie, based on a real life graphic novel! We can’t wait to see him in action!

“The film [Battling Boy] is based on a graphic novel about the young son of a god who leaves his mountain-top home to fight monsters,” a source tells the Daily Star. “It’s being produced by Brad’s Plan B production company.

“Maddox lives, eats and breathes movies and comic books, so Brad and Angelina thought he would be perfect for the starring role.”

Brad snapped up the movie rights to Battling Boy before the book was published in 2010. He must have known Maddox was perfect for the part!

We love that Maddox is taking after his famous parents — he’ll make a great action hero! Do you agree, HollyMoms?
